Another year, another Beartrap Summer Festival. This year will be ranked among the greatest, in our not-so-humble opinion. The bands were amazing, the vendors were great, and we think that we put on a heck of a show. Admittedly, however, Beartrap Festival would be nothing if it wasn't for the people. Luckily, a lot of people showed up and proved that the hottest party of the summer will continue to be Beartrap Summer Festival.
Rain or shine, umbrellas always come in handy. Luckily, we were spared rain at Beartrap Summer Festival 2012, but there was plenty of sunshine. Some fortunate people with foresight thought it would be a good idea to bring an umbrella with them to watch the amazing bands perform. We agreed, so we took some pictures of them.
One thing we noticed at Beartrap this year was that people had lotsa silly hats. We saw so many funny lookin' hats that we immediately wanted to have our own. That didn't happen, so we decided to just take some pics of other people's hats. We feel like it was the right choice.
What better way to spend the weekend than by listening to incredible music with man's best friend? Evidently, that's what a lot of festival-goers thought because we saw tons of dogs at Beartrap Summer Festival 2012. Big dogs, little dogs, cool dogs, annoying dogs- they were all there! We even snapped a few pictures so you can see what we mean.
Beartrap Summer Festival 2012 has come and gone, and we've seen a lot of things. We've seen amazing bands, cool vendors and awesome food. We've also seen lots and lots of kids. Turns out, these kiddos may be the most adorable children we've ever seen. Check out these pics and let us know if you agree.
One of the best parts about Beartrap Summer Festival 2012 is that people from all over Wyoming gather to listen to music and dance. Now granted, the dancing isn't something you would see on Dancing With The Stars or ABDC, but it's still fun to watch, especially when you're right in the middle of it with a camera.
Steve Earle and The Dukes have so many classics that I don't even know where to start in terms of picking my favorite. The writer in me always appreciates a good story, so I'd have to say that Harlan Man is one of my favs, just because it's one of the few songs that actually has a "sequel," so to speak. Check out the vid below.
It's always surreal for me when I hear famous songs by famous artists in person. Part of me forgets that I'm working, because I just want to sit back as a fan and watch. That's what happened when Steve Earle performed 'Guitar Town' at Beartrap Summer Festival 2012. Check out this video of his classic song.
Dude played a guitar sideways. That's all you need to know. Watch the video.
